When it comes to the best in-home exercise bikes, it’s hard to go past Keiser bike. Having established themselves as a market leader in outdoor cycles, Keiser has raised the bar in the home gym cycle scene also. Their range of bikes may not be the cheapest, but many would say that they are the best. In this article, we check out the Keiser M3, and tell you why you should consider adding the bike to your gym!
Shimano TM Combo pedals
Small and compact with transportation wheels
Magnetic, whisper-quiet resistance
Very comfortable padded seat
Feels like a road bike
Wireless heart rate sensors
Limited LCD display
Handlebars sit at an odd angle when adjusted to be higher
The saddle on the Keiser M3 Plus is generously wide and gives you a good amount of foam padding. You’re able to customize your position with fore/aft and up/down adjustment.
With this model, you get 24 gear eddy current resistance, to provide a huge range of progressive resistance that will suit every member of the family. In fact, this the greatest range of resistance in a home cycle that we have ever come across. Not only that, but the pedal revolution is extremely smooth, natural and quiet.
This Keiser bike has come about after 10 years of fine-tuning and research. With the mainframe being made in Keiser’s California factory under their exacting specifications, every unit is guaranteed to be top quality. You also get adjustable Shimano TM combo pedals, a backlit M series display which provides readouts of all of your vital training data and commercial quality construction.
The console of the M3 is battery powered. The console measures your RPM, how much calories you burned, how much energy you generated, and the distance you crossed, which is enough to keep most fitness lovers satisfied. The console also precisely measures your heart rate, and it does so thanks to a polar heart rate strap. Don't worry about grasping the handlebars tightly or about using a fitness watch when riding the bike, as the heart rate readings are very accurate. The console has an LCD screen that is backlit, so it's easy to read. But the M3 does lack one important feature - it has no tray for your belongings, nor does it have a place to put your water bottle in! So you will need to stop riding to grab a drink, which most users consider annoying. But then again, the front part of the frame cover does have a neat dent which can actually support your bottle, but it might roll away.
